    It seemed a little bare but we were advised by the owner that this was due to Covid regulations. Great location for exploring Dorset and East Devon. A thoroughly enjoyed le stay !

    It was abit bare but probably due to covid?

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Hillview Cottage."

    We received a helpful covid briefing call beforehand from the owner Peter. The owners live in the village and are readily on hand to deal with any query. The bungalow was well kept, clean and comfortable - and just a 2/3 minute walk from the beach, perfect! The village pubs the Anchor and Three Horseshoes, and the New Inn in the next village were all well worth our visits pre-lockdown.

  • "Owner was given incorrect arrival date so did not make contact beforehand."

    No welcome information etc with local recommendations as this was removed due to COVID and this was missed. As there was a small issue with a radiator we rang so were able to meet him. I appreciate there are COVID restrictions but this felt a bit too much. The removal of DVDs, table lamps (especially in the bedroom) etc also seems excessive and makes it all a bit sterile and less homely. Setting that aside we had a lovely few days at Hillview. The bungalow was spotlessly clean, is in a great location and we were very comfortable there and would happily return.

  • "We had a great week at Hillview."

    The beds were very comfortable and the bedding was good. It is a very good base for exploring the Jurassic Coast although with Hive Beach and West Bay so close there is no need to travel too far! A good little find. We will be back.

  • "A spacious bungalow which allowed us to have a relaxing break in spite of Covid-19."

    We were confident that everything possible had been done to ensure that the bungalow was cleaned to a very high standard. It was relaxing to be so close to the beach and some beautiful walks. It was a plus to have a sunny garden to relax in after our walks.

  • "Such a comfortable and well positioned bungalow."

    We had a lovely week and would definitely rebook - quite a gem. It may not look quaint but we certainly relaxed and felt quite a home and very dog friendly. Thank you Peter and Pauline.

  • "We usually are very open minded when it comes to holiday cottages and what to expect."

    Particularly as we take our dogs and expect the property to be dog friendly which comes hand in hand with not being the high end spec you would get from none pet friendly. However, this property in reality looks very tired and in need of a clean as well as decorating. The skirting boards, kitchen cupboards, and generally all around were dirty with old dirt. Damp/mould in the bedroom and around each of the windows in the bathroom and toilet. The garden was also really not well maintained and the property form the kerb looked run down compared to the rest of the properties. The freezer situated in the garage (which has no garage door on it) was mouldy both inside and out. The light socket in the garage was loose and you could see the wires. Now, this does all sound terrible and for some people it would be. We still enjoyed our stay as we don't put these issues high on our list of priorities but it is worth highlighting them so that the owners are aware and the future customers can make an informed decision on whether to book this property

  • "Lovely cottage in an absolutely fantastic location."

    Hive Beach Cafe is a must just for the fish & chips, quite expensive but worth it! The two Pubs both serve excellent food though we found The Anchor was less expensive and had no problem in booking a table, yes you have to book a table in advance. Hillview Bungalow is in a lovely location and is quite spacious. The sofas could do with updating as I found them rather uncomfortable and a bit worn. Upon arrival, I was disappointed to note that there was no milk, not even UHT, and that mean't I had to wait for my shopping delivery to arrive before having a cup of tea, there was inadequate toilet roll provided even just for the first night, so again I was glad that I had ordered some extra with my shopping. Also there were no dishcloths, however I did leave the ones we bought so someone else can use them. So if you are going to Hillview, I would recommend that you take these kinds of provisions with you. The garden says it is enclosed and for the most part it it, however there is a gap under the side gate that my small dogs could get through, so please bear that in mind, we put the main bins by the gate so our dogs could not get out. All in all, I would not hesitate to recommend Hillview and would not hesitate in staying there again if I was in the area, these are just some minor niggles that could cheaply and easily be rectified.

  • "Was very happy with our stay lovely bungalow was great to find somewhere that would take all 3 dogs and was so close to the dog friendly beach and great coastal walks, the only thing that could be improved was the toilet may need a new flush as was a bit loose and a new dvd remote as it did not work, only used freezer in garage for ice pack could do with a clean but worked well."

    All in all was a lovely holiday.
